Evening and Weekend Workshops
Girls Inc. Evening and Weekend Programs run throughout the year. The one-off workshops and evening programs are recreational and educatioal programs for the girls to devleop skills and foster new interests.
Workshops can include but are not limited to the following themes:
Youth Leadership: Girls meet for recreational opportunities and to focus on a specific study such as employment, self-esteem, and social issues.
Issues through Play: Girls meet to learn problem-solving skills and explore issues through play. Empowerment, female rights, and self-confidence are major components of this program.
Art Workshop: Girls support girls and learn problem-solving skills, self-expression through art mediums, self-relization, team-work, and leadership through facilitator lead art projects.
Internet Safety/Cyber Bullying: This workshop educates skills on how to be safer on and off-line, teaching them about the risks, such as on-line predators, cyber-bullying and the consequences of revealing to much information and how to make responisble decisions.
Building Self Esteem (Mother/Daughter): Self-respect, confidence, and belief in oneself are the building blocks to developing self-esteem. The challenges and stress that girls face as they enter the teenage years can seem overwhelming to both you and your daughter. Maintaining a good relationship and open lines of communitcation with your daughter is critical to her success in navigating this difficult time.
Mother / Daughter OR Father / Daughter Communication Workshops: We believe that the parent-daughter relationship is of prime importance because parents are such influential role models for their daughters. We also recognize that there are serious challenges in growing from girlhood to womanhood.
Workshops are run throughout the York Region and Bradford communities. Scheduled workshops will appear on our calendar of events. However, if enough community members and participants request a workshop we will run it upon request.
